Tiger Pigs

In another pig-related post, we see a Tiger mom nursing a bevy of little piglets in a Thai zoo.

The Sriracha Zoo, 50 miles east of the Thai capital Bangkok, recently created a program teaching domestic animals, such as pigs, to get along with wild animals, such as tigers, as a means to boost visits to the zoo.

The end result has been largely effective, with pictures like the one above showing the relative harmony these two very unlike species have etched out for themselves.

The program also has mother pigs, also known as “sows” nursing tiger cubs at a very young age.

Not only is the practice great for tourism, but it may come in handy if any complications leave a cub or piglet without a mother in the future.
